The veteran director’s ambitious project Paani will finally be made
Shekhar Kapur’s much hyped about movie Paani is finally on the cards. The film is based in a world where wars would break out over water. Now this really seems to be a stimulating idea. Why then was the project stalled? “I have been preparing for this film for a long time, but always wanted an Indian partner who has the same passion for the film as I do, and in Adi (Aditya Chopra), I have finally found that. It’s a huge production that demands futuristic sets and large action pieces. With Yash Raj Films, I have found a perfect home for Paani,” said Kapur in an interview.
The 66-year-old director will portray a future city in which a young love story will break all rules in the ensuing ‘water’ war. Though the starcast of the film has not been finalized yet, we gather that it will have a young leading actor from Bollywood and a starlet from the West. There are rumours that Hrithik Roshan might play the meaty male lead but there has been no clue about the lead female actor.
